LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - 1 of the tallest living Christmas trees in the country this year will be in central Kentucky, at Henry Clay's Ashland estate in Lexington.
Crews are stringing 36,000 lights on the 100-foot-tall, 137-year-old Norway Spruce.
All the materials and labor have been donated by local companies. The plan is to leave the lights on the tree all year so it can be lit anytime.
On Dec. 4, the estate will hold the Lighting on the Lawn to illuminate the tree, and the public is invited. The program is at 5 p.m. EST.
Director of Development Christina Bell is hoping the tree will attract people from all over the Southeast.
